Dragstrip Girl & A.I.P. Trailers
A typical example of the early American-International teen-age picture of the 1950s, when double bills of this genre were popular in drive-ins and youth oriented theaters. When the major companies stopped making “B” pictures and concentrated on “A” product to combat the new threat of television, A.I.P. stepped into the breach and turned out low budget combinations of horror, science-fiction and teen-age action subjects. These films were made in 10 days or less and introduced new talent backed by experienced featured players. Director Edward L. Cahn had edited All Quiet On the Western Front and turned out notable films in the 30s like Law and Order and Laughter in Hell.
